1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I work on real and fictional art installations. On one side I am developing realistic images of fictional houses, and I am experimenting in real life with some of the immersive ideas in large scale art installations. That helps remove any limits, and keep me focused on the research. I started by posting my images on social networks, and I received some inquiries from clients. The power of the images help me to gain more visibility.
2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?
I love going to Centre Pompidou in Paris. It’s not only the permanent or temporary collections, but it is an ecosystem. There is an amazing book store, a public library, lecture series, kids program. I am a big fan of the building as well, which is one of the last century’s best architecture landmarks.
3.How important are social networks in your business? And which platform do you prefer and why?
Social networks are everything in my business. I see my work and research as a dialogue with the public. I like to show new ideas on my social networks. Then, I develop them in Immersive Art installation. The public is part of my work, photos that will publish the visitors shows how they have explored and discovered the artworks. It is essential.
